As Ontario prepares for an election in October, several groups are trying to raise the question of continued funding for the province’s Catholic elementary and secondary schools. Some claim that all publicly-funded schools would be operated more efficiently if there was one, non-sectarian system, with school boards drawn geographically and, in most localities, in French or English streams. Several public school boards have already passed resolutions to this effect. Others claim that public funding for religious schools, currently enjoyed only by Catholics, should be extended to other faith groups in the name of fairness and respect for religious equality.
